It’s no secret around these parts that both Scruffy and I are HUGE fans of a particular Dark Knight. So, it’s definitely no surprise that we’re extremely excited about Black Milk Clothing’s new release I am the Batman! This collection boasts both printed designs that include Batman heroes and foes, and some designer pieces that are influenced by the comics.
We also have a fun spandex related surprise at the end of this post, so click on!
This time of year, my social media pages are full of people trying to motivate themselves to be more fit and workout. Now, while I’m not fond of those inspiration images usually seen around Pinterest telling me what I should or shouldn’t do, I am fond of messages that get me a little more pumped up to go to the gym. Especially, when those messages are nerdy AND on workout clothes. Activate Apparel is a company I touched on back in this post, and since I’ve been seeing them pop up on friend’s pages, I figured checking out their new stuff would be worth a look.
Following up last week’s post highlighting our favorite licensed geek apparel available at Forever 21, today we’re sharing our favorite geeky jewelry that can also be had there. Ranging from licensed to conveniently themed jewelry, you’re sure to find something to add that finishing touch to your geek chic look, at a great price!
In another couple of hours, it will be January 22nd over in England, and for countries like theirs where they write dates with the day first, then month, that means it’s 22.1 – as in 221B, Sherlock Holmes Day!

Black Milk Clothing led the charge into the world of geek themed spandex that many companies have enthusiastically taken up the call to arms to follow. One such company is Los Angeles based clothing company, Poprageous! Ranging from prints featuring fandoms like Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, to collaborating with artists like JSalvador of Super Emo Friends genius, Poprageous is definitely one of those companies whose garments should be a part of any geek chic girl’s wardrobe!
Alongside Hot Topic, Forever 21 and Wet Seal are two of the top companies where you can find fun and stylish superhero apparel to add to your wardrobe. While both companies have an abundance of licensed Marvel apparel, Forever 21 gets bonus points for also carrying licensed DC Comics apparel! Be sure to check out your local Forever 21 store, especially for Batman gear, as the website doesn’t always list all of the gear to be found in stores.

One of the quickest and easiest ways to refresh your look is through accessories, and Hot Topic is often my go to when I’m looking to nab a few things at a very reasonable price. Given that they update their inventory often, it’s usually easy to find something that’s new and maybe a bit different. Here are just some of the things I’ve rounded up from their current selection.
Wet Seal continues to throw out a couple of choice geek apparel, usually all Marvel, on a pretty regular basis. Some of their pieces stick around for awhile, while others come and go. They’re definitely a shop you’ll want to consistently keep your eye on to see what gems they have in store and online that you’ll want to get your hands on! We’ve picked out our favorite pieces of the currently available selection that can be found online.
